What are Porcelain Veneers?
A porcelain veneer is a thin shell of porcelain that is cemented to the front of a tooth – think of them as “false fingernails” for your teeth. The procedure is done to cover surface imperfections that range from teeth that are too large or small to severe discoloration. Porcelain veneers are also great for closing gaps or spaces between teeth and covering up fractured, chipped, or worn teeth. A veneer can be applied to one tooth or several teeth simultaneously.
What is veneer? A veneer can be made from various materials, but porcelain is considered superior because it behaves just like real enamel. Porcelain is translucent and reflects light the same way real teeth do. Porcelain is also highly resistant to stains from wine, coffee, and bright-colored foods.
Are Porcelain Veneers Right for You?
Anyone who has healthy teeth but wants a better smile can benefit from porcelain veneers. Because veneer application is a cosmetic procedure, your mouth must be generally healthy beforehand. If there is any visible decay or gum disease, Dr. Landry will treat these problems first before fixing appearance issues. The tooth enamel must also be thick and strong enough to withstand the preparation. A bit of enamel will be removed to make room for the veneer and prevent a bulky, unnatural look.
